Both of these legendary musicians/composers worked with Miles Davis on his
classics like Bitches Brew, plus solid tenures with legends like Cannonball
Adderley (Zawinul) and Art Blakey (Shorter) all of which would prove to become
the huge catalyst for things to come.
Throughout the seventies and beyond, Weather Report’s fine arsenal of recordings
would take the band to the top of all the popular music charts. The 1972 fusion
live masterpiece Live In Tokyo would go on to yield one of the most important
albums of their career as it hit the top rungs of the jazz charts, plus major
showings in the pop and r&b charts.
No stone is left unturned, as this masterwork is loaded with stellar classics
and long extensive live workouts on smashes like Wayne Shorter's Eurydice and
Tears, the Shorter/Zawinul collaboration Umbrellas and Joe Zawinul favorite
As one of the most enduring albums in their massive career catalog, Live In
